Choose Your Marriott Bonvoy Benefits For 2022

To the point Choose your Marriott Bonvoy benefits for 2022 as a Platinum Elite or Titanium Elite member now.

Marriott Bonvoy Annual Choice Benefits

Marriott Bonvoy offers Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador elite members the opportunity to select their benefits for the upcoming year.

These benefits are in addition to those automatically available such as complimentary breakfasts or upgrades. The deadline for choosing your benefits is January 7, 2023.

To achieve these status levels, you must have reached a minimum of 50 Elite-nights (Platinum) or 75 Elite-nights (Titanium and Ambassador) in 2021. However, you don’t need to have stayed that many nights:

If you are not yet a Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Cardmember or a Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Cardmember, I suggest you get it before the current promotion ends (May 11, 2022).

For Platinum Elite members

As a Platinum Elite member, with at least 50 eligible nights in the previous year, you can choose from several Annual Marriott Bonvoy Choice Benefits:

  • Add five Elite Night Credits to your 2022 total.
  • Save 40% on a bed from your favorite hotel brand.
  • Gift Marriott Bonvoy Silver Elite status to a family member, friend or colleague.
  • Donate $100 to a partner foundation
  • Get five Suite Night Awards™ to redeem for upgrades to suites and premium rooms.

  • Gift Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status to a family member, friend or colleague.
  • Get five Suite Night Awards™ to redeem for upgrades to suites and premium rooms.
  • Save 40% on a bed from your favorite hotel brand.
  • Donate $100 to a partner foundation

Choose your benefits

To choose your benefit, you must log in to your Marriott Bonvoy account on this page before January 7, 2023. A popup will appear explaining to you how many benefits you can select.

Here is the one for Titanium Elite members:

You will then be asked to choose from the benefits offered according to your status:

marriott bonvoy selection platinum
marriott bonvoy selection titanium

Please note that you have until January 7, 2023, to make your choice. Personally, I will wait until the first week of January 2023 to make my choice.

Indeed, I already have 13 suite upgrades in my Marriott Bonvoy account: there is no need to add more at this time.

So I’ll wait until I’ve used them up to get more in 2023. Especially since I always find a way to negotiate an upgrade via the chat without using those credits!

The 5 Elite night credits may be helpful for those who are near to achieving an Elite status this year. This will not be my case: thanks to my Canadian and American credit cards, I had 30 Elite nights as of January 1st. And I added enough nights to the counter during the double Elite nights promotion to reach the 75-night mark.

As mentioned in my last newsletter, analyze your needs before chasing a status:

Yes, a Marriott Bonvoy Status (Platinum and above) offers you many benefits. But does the investment of staying in hotels for up to 35 nights (18 in the current promotion) make sense if you are not a business traveller?
Wouldn’t it be better to pay for your breakfasts or get a nicer room on your next trip? And focus on getting points rather than status?

As for the second choice offered to Titanium and Ambassador Elite members: no hesitation for me. This will be the free night certificate worth up to 40,000 points.

Indeed, the other choice is useless for people around me who already have Gold Elite status as Platinum Cardmembers®, for example!

Here again, it is more relevant to wait until the beginning of 2023 to select this benefit, knowing that this certificate will then be valid until December 31, 2024 (and not 2023 if chosen this year)!

Conclusion

If you do not make your choice by January 7, 2023, you will automatically receive five Suite Night Awards for each of the Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador Elite benefits.
